Fatuma is the founder of Akiki Dolls, which was born out of her need as a mother to empower her daughter. The Akiki doll is a channel for her and other girls to embrace their diversity, appreciating their differences and develop a sense of self-worth. Her childlike figure resembles a girl, this reduces the pressure on a perpetuated physical appearance, which allows girls to be girls. In this episode, we talk about how Akiki Dolls is playing a key role in empowering young African girls, along with what it takes to create a product for children and the thought process behind making sure they embrace it.
